Dude, just about anything is better than XP's Luna theme. It's far too simplified and immature.

Just a note: It's considered "improper" to revive dead posts. Oh well, what the heck?!

Simple is what makes it a success. If you want to do more, you add more.

True, but what I mean is that Luna is too cheesy. I always revert to "Windows Classic" style.

WINE already has theming support. Some things (like the menus in WINE's regedit) get really slow when you enable a theme, but it mostly works. ROS just needs a UI to expose that functionality, right?

I think the real lesson here is that everybody has diferent tastes, and they're not going to satisfy most people with a one-size-fits-all "looks almost kinda like NT/2000" treatment.

I just believe like more people do that there should be a basic style, and the style just needs to be selected by the user.

Possibly even at the end of the installation of ReactOS.

The classic plus theme interface was horrible, but a "Save As..." (for a .theme) would be nice after the OK button in the first photo.

I LOVED WIN3x
I used Program.exe in 95 but its just not the same, I like the icons at the bottom not the lowered windows

IMHO, is not a bad idea to:

1) Put all the hotkey combination including WinKey (es. WinKey+E, and so on), to the F1-F12 Row buttons.

2) In the future version of ROS (maybe from the 1.0.0 stable and next), start to improve the interface in order to let the user have more options to modify the interface (es. like WindowBlinds)

3) Inserting, a new tab in the .exe, .lnk, .pif asking if the system buttons (es. WinKey, Left Shift etc.), should be "deactivated" during the execution of the application.
Maybe someone has experienced when you are playing, in a sudden, the game disappear because you have hit the WinKey button.
